Anne Frank Class


Welcome to Year 4 Anne Frank's Class page!

We are Ms  Fisher and Miss Doherty and we are really looking forward to sharing the teaching in Year 4 this term. Ms Fisher will be teaching Maths and Miss Doherty will be teaching English. 

Reading is an extremely important skill that is utilised in every subject. Please try your hardest to read with your child every night for 30 minutes and to record this in their Reading Record.

P.E. is on a  Wednesday. Please ensure that your child’s P.E. kit is in school.

Homework goes home every Friday and is due the following Wednesday. If there are any issues or problems with completing the homework, please let us know in advance so that we can provide support. 

There is a spelling test and a times tables test every Friday to test the children’s knowledge of the words and times tables that they have been learning throughout the week. Children will be given new spellings and times tables every Monday so that they have the entire week to practise.

If there is anything that you need or if you have any questions, please feel free to come and speak to either one of us. We look forward to working with you all.

In a creative twist, later in the term, children will be writing their own non-chronological reports based on their fictional coral sea creature!

Numeracy: We will be following the National Curriculum.
